Say that reminds me-anybody get a chance yet to see their new one, No Country For Old Men? I don't think I've ever read a more positively reviewed movie at Rotten Tomatoes:

It isn't being released here until January 18 - but I'm certainly looking forward to it.

How you doing, Bryan?

Jerry Douglas rocks as does the rest of Union Station,and that Crossroads on PBS is SICK I posted about it at the other place the other night, I only caught some of it and it looked to me like Seals was on the keys. Am I right here? I only caught a glimpse of him but I was almost sure it was him. Either way thats an all star line up. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL PBS, without them "our" music would NEVER see the light of day!!!!

Hello Mr. wordsmith,

Only now able to answer your reply from yesterday because our internet at home is on the fritz (Do y'all in the Isles use that expression? If not, it means it's fucked up), and I put up that Coen Brothers question right before ending my work day. But anyway, it's all good here---sorta. I'd bitch, but who really gives a shit?

I certainly can't bitch about watching highlights from the Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival on the St. Louis Public TV station last night. You're probably aware of how it works, but over here, some of the best programming is reserved for the two times a year, give or take, when the audience-supported stations hit up their viewers for money. They throw in DVD packages and such with each "membership" (a few years ago they gave away the Closing of the Winterland). This time around, Crossroads '07, referenced elsewhere in this thread, is the incentive deal, and copious footage was aired.

Man, oh man, check this mofo out!!! (read no further if you don't want any spoilers) I flipped over to it just in time to catch the end of what Derek Trucks was doing, then he steps aside to make way for Johnny Winter. And while that withered old junkie can't even stand up on stage anymore, his playing hasn't diminished in the least, and Highway 61 just sails. Also Los Lobos (don't know if you've ever had the chance to see them, but you can search the world over, and you will never find a better live rock and roll band), and some slick pickin' from Vince Gill then Albert Lee. Jeff Beck proves why he is still THE vanguard of progessive rock guitar. Playing with him is Tal Wilkenfeld, an amazing young woman on bass---

---make no mistake, this gal smokes! Willie serves up a typically soulful Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain, and Robbie Roberston joins Eric for a gritty take on Who Do Ya Love in tribute to the ailing Bo Diddley. And when Winwood takes to the stage for a reunion with Eric and a healthy dose of Blind Faith, it's even better than anyone could have hoped for. Steve shows that he can hold his own with any other lead guitarist by what he does on Dear Mr. Fantasy, too. My only complaint in what I was able to see was that Buddy Guy's appearance at the end for the all-star finale of Sweet Home Chicago was far too brief, but for all I know, he had already been on before I switched channels. Up until that point, I had it on the other local public channel where I saw a clip of Bob Marley and The Wailers performing Get Up, Stand Up, and that wasn't too shabby, either. Who knows what that station was giving away, though. All in all, a nice way to follow up the evening's early entertainment, my fifth grade daughter's school Christmas pageant.

Just thought I'd fill you in on all of that. Maybe if you've been a good boy this year, Father Christmas will bring you the Crossroads DVD, but only if you've been very, VERY good.

Bryan - this is a quicker response than you deserve because I'm going off to eat soon. I will drop you an email regarding the Crossroads Guitar festival. I may have something for you.
